Is there any other screw sets that is out there for the XXX-S other than Trinity? Even the stock screws that comes with the kit will do, need them as spares. Thanks!

If you want cooler looking, stronger screws, contact TheBarber, or send an email to barberracn@aol.com. Barber Racing makes Stainless steel screw kits for TC3, and XXX-S. They look great

does losi sell a graphite plus conversion kit. i want to stock up on parts but i think it would be cheaper to buy a kit and sell the main chassis.
i know they have a graphite converson kit with the old parts, i want to know if they bought out a new one for the gp.

yes they do, I think it might be a running change. Might want to look at Losi's website for more help. www.teamlosi.com

I just finished bulding my xxx-s g+ and am kinda stumped on the final diff setting. The manual stated to look in the back under tech tips but there is no mention of a final diff (in the car) setting. Is it something simple like turn the diff screw all the way in and back off half a turn? Can anyone offer any advice?? Thanks!

I think Stailess Steel would be heavier than the stock steel screw. So, what's the point of changing them other that looks cool.

I am trying so hard to reduce the weight of My XXX-S G+ to the 1500grams....

losi diffs are very different from TC3, the process you mentioned doesn't apply to the losi, the most important thing here is that your diffs do not slip.

now that the diffs are installed, the way i check is this... hold the rear tires with your elbows, your hands should be within the front tires, now hold the rear tires with your elbow, and turn the front tires at the same time, if the front tires rotate easily, tighten your diff... do the same for the rear.

The stainless is about the same as stock weight wise,If you want lighter go with the Ti. screw kit and ball studs.I have my car down to 51.4 oz,I think thats under 1500 grams.. but its not cheap.

Titanium is cool too, but if you have alum. parts they're a no no, i hear they fuse together. As said before, stainless steel will be a bit stronger than the stock ones too, as well as looking great. KT hobbies stocks them too.

guru rc products has some awesome stainless steel screws and they are pretty much dirt cheap. 12 bucks for the xxxs set. email him at rcguru911@juno.com no missing screws or anything and you even get motor screws

I don't think this is much of an issue with a xxx-s, but you can use a film of grease to prevent it. It's a bigger issue with titanium mountain bike parts (which I have a few of) because you tend to put them on, ride in bad conditions and never move the parts.
